Let Pebble Time Shipping Begin! Pre-Orders Start June 22

Pebble Time Shipping Starts Today

Let’s Ship Some Watches!

Pebble Time rewards begin their journeys home as shipments to our amazing Kickstarter backers are underway:

  • With Pebble Time now at distribution centers, shipping labels and tracking numbers will start going out and ramp up quickly.
  • The first 10,000 Pebble Time rewards will ship from our five distribution centers around the world this week.
  • From there, we’ll keep on shipping! All Pebble Time backers should receive tracking numbers by mid-June.

The support and feedback from our first million Pebblers since starting this journey has carried us further and faster than we imagined. Thanks to them, we’re delivering the most focused, purpose-built smartwatch for busy people to Get. Things. Done.

Pebble Time builds on the past, focuses on the present, and welcomes the future.

Up Your Pebble Watchface Game!

Download Thin »

Thin by Chris Lewis

Thin by Chris Lewis is live now on the Pebble appstore. Get it in color with Pebble Time!

With traditional watches, you’ve got one face forever—changing your watch’s look means shelling out for something new. Not so much with Pebble, though.

Since the beginning, you’ve remixed Pebble in ways we never would have imagined. Giving you a wrist-top canvas to express yourself remains one of coolest reasons to have a Pebble—you know it’s true! Pebblers are pretty darn creative. We love seeing your personalizations as much as you love making them happen.

Pebble Apps of the Week (17–23 Apr)

Apps of the Week Banner

Apps are what make Pebble awesome. Ever since introducing our first smartwatch to the world, developers have used Pebble as a launchpad for doing fun, useful, and delightful things—right from your wrist. Our developer tools encourage people to give Pebble new features and capabilities that weren’t there before and share these apps with the community to enjoy. When our developer community wants Pebble to do something new, they build it!

Even better, Pebblers love working together. When one Pebbler needed help with an app to help manage the after effects of a stroke, the community banded together to craft an app that would help her out.

Apps are Pebble’s foundation—they’re the soul that gives your smartwatch life. With so many apps to choose from, we decided to do some soul-searching for those hidden gems.

Take a peek at what we found.

Apps for Heroes: CommandWear Pebble app keeps first responders heads-up and hands-free

First responders have one of the toughest, most critical jobs out there. Any chance Pebble gets to show love and support to these everyday heroes is a win in our book.

Paramedic + Pebble

Today we’re proud to share news that CommandWear—a platform for using technology to keep first responders heads-up and hands-free when out in the field—now integrates with Pebble and is live in our appstore for Android devices.

We love that CommandWear, like Pebble, is purpose-built to be truly useful for those who need it. During extensive testing with police, paramedics, and other first responders, CommandWear refined their app to make the best use of Pebble’s tactile, glanceable, durable, and fast design and interface.

“At festivals, concerts and other large public events, noise levels can be at a height where you can’t hear yourself think, let alone hear radio communications,” explained Rod Salem, Director of Emergency Management Operations at BC Ambulance. “We have tried a number of different products, such as headsets similar to what pilots wear. Although they solve the noise issue, they are cumbersome and not conducive to caring for patients in the field.”

First responders found Pebble’s wrist vibration gave them the ability to detect incoming messages that they would have missed on their radios or smart phones. It’s great to see emergency workers like Rod show love for this Pebble integration already, and look forward to more feedback as CommandWear becomes part of more safety agencies’ toolkits.
